00:38<Panseriya> site is not working
00:38<millisa>why not?
00:38<Panseriya>Can you please look at it?
00:39<Panseriya>I am not sure what's that happening in the server. Is this a server issue?

00:41<millisa>Panseriya: it doesn't look like that server is listening on port 443.
00:41<millisa>Hi, Romain

00:41-!-TomasCZ [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:42<Panseriya>I have already configured 443 port.
00:43-!-mode/#linode [+l 366] by ChanServ
00:43<millisa>is it open in the firewall?
00:43<Panseriya>can you please elaborate?
00:44<millisa>Did you open port 443 in your firewall?
00:44<Panseriya>I have not configured firewall.
00:45<Panseriya>So, why that's the happenning.
00:45<millisa>what distribution did you install?
00:47<millisa>if you type 'sudo ufw status' what does it say?
00:48-!-Romain [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:48<Panseriya>Status: active To Action From -- ------ ---- 22 ALLOW Anywhere 22 (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)
00:49<millisa>that looks like an active firewall that doesn't have anything other than ssh open
00:49-!-mode/#linode [+l 365] by ChanServ
00:49<Panseriya>right now, I need to site running as well
00:50<millisa>there is an example of opening port 80 and 443 in that add rules section
00:50<Panseriya>Please send me command for it
00:50<millisa>I sent you the doc that has them.
00:52<Panseriya>which ports need to add into rules
00:52<millisa>I guess the doc doesn't have 443 in that section. tcp port 80 is http. tcp port 443 is https.
00:53<linbot>New news from forum: General Discussion • Create a new disk and then mount to my existing $20 instance <>
00:57<Panseriya>can you please wail few minuts..?
00:57<Panseriya>can you please wait few minuts..?
01:06<Panseriya>Now, it is working but what is the issue?
01:06<millisa>it looks like you opened the ports in your firewall
01:06<millisa>you didn't have them open

01:32<sinojustin>I am looking for a VPS supplier who can offer good service and easy to operate.
01:32<millisa>you could try linode.
01:32<dcraig>ehhh, linode might work
01:33-!-mode/#linode [+l 365] by ChanServ
01:33<millisa>sinojustin: you might want to take a look at some of the docs to see how it works. This is good place to start:
01:33<sinojustin>For a factory's business demostration website, Which size of the storage do you recommend me to use?
01:33<millisa>As much as you need?
01:33<dcraig>how big is your website?
01:34<arlen>this big | |
01:34<dcraig>holy cow
01:35<millisa>sinojustin: with linodes, it's easy to resize them if you find you need more resources
01:35<arlen>holy dog
01:36<sinojustin>If we try with a small size, then when we need a larger one, we can easily transfer the size. Am I right?
01:36<dcraig>yes, it scales right up
01:36<sinojustin>I mean start with.
01:37<millisa>To resize, you just shutdown, choose to resize, and then boot back up after the resize finishes. Small linodes only take a few minutes
01:41*dcraig has resized millisa twice now
01:41<millisa>I'm *huge* now.
01:42<dcraig>actually I shrunk you
01:42<millisa>I'm down to Huge!
01:43<millisa>no longer 'ginormous' or 'oh my god, it will destroy the city'
01:43<arlen>you're not huge, you just have big server rails

02:08<sinojustin>Hi Millisa, Currently we are using the domestic sever supplier in mainland of China. The operator of our website said the new server space supplier need be be appliance with net 4.0
02:09<sinojustin>What does that mean, I think Linode is compliance with NET 4.0

05:21<scotti>so I just got served a Linode ad (from Google Ads) on
05:21-!-mode/#linode [+l 364] by ChanServ
05:21<scotti>it was an anti-obama hit piece obviously orchestrated by right wing trolls
05:21<scotti>to distract from a current President's problems, yada yada yada
05:22<scotti>so my question: Is Linode in any way associated with this message?
05:22<scotti>Does Linode condone their advertisement showing up on a right wing hit piece?
05:22<scotti>here's the URL FYI
05:23<Peng>Teen Vogue runs right-wing hit pieces?
05:23<scotti>yeah lol
05:23<scotti>I was stunned
05:23<scotti>and there is a fat Linode ad on the top (for me at least)
05:23<nate>I doubt anyone in here cares what the URL is, nor does anyone ever really control where ads are shown on google outside of whether or not a site is considered "adult content" so :P
05:23<Peng>Are you sure it's not a left-wing hit piece?
05:24<scotti>nate: I know - but Linode might want to be conscious of where its ads are shown
05:24<scotti>companies are being more conscious about that sort of stuff these days
05:24<scotti>Peng: It's anti-Obama, but it came out 2 June
05:24<scotti>it's clearly a hit piece to distract the readership from the current President's problems
05:25<nate>Pretty sure linode just likes sales. I imagine the only place they really care about ads going are like racist organization sites perhaps, past that who cares what ads end up on some silly site where people can post opinions? :P
05:25<Peng>First few grafs sound left-wing to me.

05:26<scotti>nate: well sure - but our society is evolving to associate advertisers with content
05:26<scotti>Peng: it's right-wing stuff masquerading as left-wing, soft, anti-war rhetoric
05:26<nate>I dunno that I'd go that far but
05:27<scotti>here I am uploading a screenshot
05:27<scotti>big fat Linode ad
05:27<Peng>scotti: What
05:27<scotti>Peng: How was Obama relevant on 2 June 2017 ?
05:27<scotti>please explain
05:27<scotti>that was clearly a hit piece to distract the public from Trump's controversies
05:27<scotti>....... and a big fat Linode ad :P
05:27<scotti>to sell me VPS
05:28<nate>it's teenvogue, I highly doubt anyone really gives a shit what someone's opinions are that have to post on teenvogue, at least anyone who actually cares to get a linodel
05:29<hawk>scotti: I would assume the ad is shown there based on *you*, not so much based on the surrounding content. The whole premise of your reasoning seems a little odd to me.
05:29<scotti>hawk: well yes of course
05:29<scotti>but I still think Linode should be conscious
05:29<scotti>where its ads are shown, etc
05:30<scotti>what if it showed up on a Neo-Nazi website
05:30<hawk>scotti: Please stop visiting those sites and the problem will go away :P
05:30<scotti>or a "Burn down all Data Centers" websites
05:30<Peng>The rest of the article also sounds pretty left-wing.
05:31<Peng>nate: Teen Vogue is pretty good
05:39<scotti>there it is
05:40<scotti>takes up nearly 50% of the page too

07:13<dzho>doesn't the Great Firewall make "direct link to China" something that no one has?
07:13<dzho>asabih: ^^^^
07:36<asabih>by direct link i mean that hosting does not rout the request via US, but directly to China
07:36<asabih>alot of Hk based hostings direct requests Via US Servers

10:42<MajObviousman>so 14.04's bind9 package doesn't support CAA
10:42<MajObviousman>looks like I'm upgrading to systemd :(
10:42*ctarquini likes systemd
10:43*MajObviousman is slowly making his peace with systemd
10:43<@ctarquini>I understand the opposition to it but in my day-to-day systemd makes life so much easier in many cases
10:43<Peng>MajObviousman: You could ender CAA records using RFC 3597 syntax.
10:44<@ctarquini>super easy to create new services that just work (journaling, if I need log files it's just adding a line to rsyslog, restart on failure, etc, etc)
10:44<Peng>Or you could use a different nameserver \o/
10:44<Peng> :P
10:44<@ctarquini>easy to modify other services without editing files that get overwritten by updates
10:45<@ctarquini>dependencies are easy to define
10:45<MajObviousman>I'm not super pleased with BIND, but it has worked fine thus far
10:45<MajObviousman>might consider a different software, but for now I just wanna whack the CAA records into my domains and move on
10:47<Peng>You can do that RFC 3597 style.
10:47<Peng>Though IMO upgrading is better. Or using a different nameserver. ;)
10:49<tmberg>Nsd ftw!
10:49*MajObviousman needs to upgrade
10:49<MajObviousman>I need to go over my server and find all the non-devops'd things, then stick them into states
10:49<MajObviousman>over time that list has grown
10:50<Peng>tmberg: Not on Ubuntu. It's in universe and they never patch it.
10:50<Peng>Though the version in Trusty *does* support CAA without RFC 3597.
10:50<MajObviousman>tmberg: opportunityt o step up and be maintainer
10:52<tmberg>Still nsd ftw! ;) =)
10:54<Peng>I like NSD, but unmaintained NSD. If you use it on Ubuntu, IMO you should use Debian or be prepared to backport patches.
10:54<Peng>but not unmaintained*
10:54<Peng>Though i use Knot now, for other reasons.
10:55*MajObviousman rolls the rFC 3597 syntax, grimaces a bit but it passes the rndc reload

11:12<jeremiah>I'm having a spot of trouble booting my linode, after 641 days of uptime
11:12<jeremiah>I'm running Debian Jessie with systemd
11:12-!-mode/#linode [+l 366] by ChanServ
11:12<scotti>so what's the issue
11:13<jeremiah>It hangs in dev-sdb.service
11:13<jeremiah>Sorry, dev-sdb.device
11:14<jeremiah>I wonder if its checking for a device that doesn't exist?
11:15<jeremiah>And now it says "Dependency failed for /dev/sdb"
11:15<scotti>maybe ask in #debian
11:15<scotti>they are pretty active on this network
11:15<jeremiah>Okay, perhaps I'll do that.
11:16<jeremiah>Thing is, I wonder if something is happening with the disknaming at Linode which might cause this problem?
11:19<akerl>do you have a /dev/sdb?
11:20<grawity>do you have udev?
11:20<jeremiah>I don't think I do
11:20<jeremiah>I assume I have udev
11:20<jeremiah>Thing is the machine won't boot so I can't check. :/
11:20<jeremiah>I'm in LISH at the moment
11:20<@mcintosh>do you have a ticket open?
11:20<grawity>boot to rescue system, remove /dev/sdb from your fstab, then try again
11:20<akerl>I'd probably just make a crap disk and attach it as /dev/sdb :P
11:20<jeremiah>mcintosh: Not yet
11:21<grawity>assuming it's the default setup of sdb being a swap disk
11:21<jeremiah>grawity: I have a Swap and I think that is it
11:21<jeremiah>I'll drop into finnix and check the disk's fstab
11:23<jeremiah>I removed the /dev/sdb in the web inteface, it was swap
11:23<jeremiah>I'm rebooting now.
11:23<akerl>If it's in fstab, and you removed it from the web interface, that'll make things *worse*, not better :P
11:24<jeremiah>Isn't the web interface connected to fstab?
11:24<jeremiah>I guess I'm assuming.
11:25<linbot>New news from forum: General Discussion • Wordpress site not sending out emails <>
11:26<jeremiah>I'll boot into single user mode

11:34-!-mode/#linode [+l 367] by ChanServ
11:35<jeremiah>So udev is on the system and /dev/sdb looks pretty generic:
11:35<rodolfojcj>hello everybody
11:35<jeremiah>"dev/sdb none swap sw 0 0"
11:35<rodolfojcj>I have a friend of mine that is trying to support a very legacy application, which is know to work with Ubuntu 8.04 distribution
11:35<rodolfojcj>he wants to use a VPS to run that application and now I want to know if Linode platform would allow some way to install and run a quite old distribution like Ubuntu 8.04
11:36<akerl>jfred: o/
11:36<akerl>jeremiah: No, the web interface controls what block devices the host server gives your VM. fstab controls what your VM does with those block devices
11:36<akerl>2 separate layers
11:36<jeremiah>akerl: Ah, okay. Thank you
11:36<akerl>rodolfojcj: You could but you shouldn't
11:37<rodolfojcj>akerl: could you please elaborate the reasons?
11:37<akerl>Because 8.04 hasn't seem a security update in quite some time
11:38<dwfreed>8.04 has not been maintained for a long time; it's vulnerable to shellshock, among dozens of other things
11:40<rodolfojcj>ok. Very reasonable. Is it then possible to create some kind of private network to allow access only to some people?
11:40<rodolfojcj>what he wants is to "make it run" somehow
11:40<akerl>Why doesn't it work on newer ubuntu
11:44<rodolfojcj>I don't know the precise details. What it know is that it's a legacy and unmaintained Java + Tomcat based application he received within the company he works, being known that, for some reason to be discovered later, it only works with that Ubuntu 8.04 distribution
11:45<akerl>Sounds like somebody should figure out why
11:45<jeremiah>So removing the swap on /dev/sdb prevented the systemd timeout, but now the boot hangs at:
11:46<jeremiah>nf_conntrack: default automatic helper assignment has been turned off for security reasons and CT-based firewall rule not found. Use the iptables CT target to attach helpers instead.
11:46<rodolfojcj>yes, I' ashamed my friend is that "somebody"
11:46<jeremiah>That looks like a iptables issue
11:46<grawity>it doesn't hang at that
11:46<grawity>that just happens to be the last message it prints at current loglevel
11:47<grawity>you don't know for sure what else it has been trying to do, especially with parallel boot
11:47<jeremiah>Good point
11:47<ponas>rodolfojcj: tell your friend that it cannot be done :-)
11:47<ponas>without a time machine
11:48<rodolfojcj>je je je
11:49<rodolfojcj>I thought about using a locally installed virtual machine with Virtual Box to run Ubuntu 8.04, but then I asked myself how to make it remotely available
11:50<jeremiah>Well, I guess I'll boot into single user mode and try and bring ups services and see what hangs
11:50<akerl>that's really the whole point here: 8.04 isn't fit to be remotely available

14:26<Suzzy>hi, i'll preface this by saying i have absolutely no idea what i'm doing. we have a linode account with a debian 6 profile (whatever that means) that we use for VPN access. i'm trying to figure out how many active users we have and, if possible, activity. is there some way to do that?
14:26<Sally>for DNS
14:26-!-Sally [] has quit []
14:27<akerl>Suzzy: Yes but not in a way that's straightforward to describe
14:27<@jalter>Sally: If you don't remember your username, please visit and click "Forgot username". You'll need your email address.
14:27<grawity>Suzzy: depends on the VPN software you're using, for a start
14:27<@jalter>Sally is gone.
14:27<Suzzy>the tech dude sends me openVPN credentials
14:27-!-mode/#linode [+l 371] by ChanServ
14:27<Suzzy>and we use openVPN for the gui'
14:28<grawity>then count the logins in /var/log/<wherever OpenVPN log messages go>
14:29<Suzzy>and what sort of program would i use for that /var/log/<wherever OpenVPN log messages go>?
14:29<Suzzy>i have a windows pc and a little mac pro.
14:32<akerl>Have the tech dude SSH in
14:32<grawity>PuTTY from the former, `ssh` from the latter, but
14:33<@jalter>Suzzy: from the way you prefaced your question, I'm assuming that you don't have much experience with Linux or working with the command line. If that's true, you'll probably need to have your tech dude (or a different tech dude) handle that.
14:33<grawity>obtain the root credentials from whoever manages the server
14:33<@jalter>One option would be our tech dudes...
14:34<Suzzy>OK. no i don't have a linux type system, i do have CMD or MS powershell. would either of those work for this? and thanks for the tip about SSH & root credentials.
14:35<@jalter>You can install PuTTY on Windows to connect over SSH
14:35<Suzzy>i guess CMD is actually a DOS command prompt?
14:35<millisa>or you could use your mac pro. it has ssh at the terminal
14:35<@jalter>but that Debian 6 profile means that your server is running Linux - so you'll be using a Linux commandline once you connect over SSH.
14:35<grawity>...kind of, in the same way that Terminal in macOS is "actually a Linux command prompt"
14:37<grawity>what sort of vpn is that though
14:37<Suzzy>thanks very much for the information and the link, i do appreciate it. i'll get out of your hair now.

16:09<@jalter>rkm: some people do that. we're OK with it :)
16:10<rkm>also, another thing I searched (unsuccessfully) are sample files for different regions. For example, when you see companies advertise on a site such as WHT, they often give a link to a page that has sample downloads for their various datacenter. Does linode offer a sample page like this?

16:11<rkm>you guys are amazing, this is the best idea for support yet .. normally I'd be 20 minutes in, being asked whether my system is plugged-in, having re-asked the same question 50 times with cut-and-paste irrelevant answers .. just to get to this point!
16:12<@jalter>thanks :) but most of the answers you got came from our awesome community
16:13<millisa>*is* your system plugged in?
16:14<rkm>@jalter absolutely, exactly what I meant in being such a great idea for support! ..and thank you all, btw

16:14<rkm>I just ran through the speed tests .. best I received was about 16 Mbps on the node nearest to me (Atlanta, I'm in South Florida)
16:15<hellohi>Noob question. Are all linode instances considered managed thus all have the free cpanel license?
16:15<millisa>rkm: that might be your isp. the tiniest linode can go quite a bit beyond that

16:15<@jalter>hellohi: If you're looking for an incident response service, Linode Managed is great. If all you want is cPanel, it'd be less expensive to get a separate license
16:16<millisa>if you go for the managed offering, each linode in that account is going to cost $100 more a monht

16:16<linbot>Marklin: If you have a question, feel free to just ask it -- someone's always willing to help. If you don't get a response right away, be patient! You may want to read
16:16<@jalter> seems reasonable but I haven't used them before
16:16<millisa> is about the same price. i have used them.
16:16<rkm>nodes, no matter the package, all have 1-Gbps down, I believe. Our current colo (also in Atlanta) will typically get me a file in about 80 Mbps down .. Is the reason for the 16-Mbps in my test, network congestion, or is there a limiting factor?
16:17<Marklin>Cool..Does anyone know if Linode Takes Purchase Orders for payment and if you can be charged by them annauly as oppsed to monthly?

16:18<Meyer__>rkm: I just tried downloading the speedtest file from Atlanta and I got approx 80 Mbps. I am located in Sweden
16:19<rkm>So, just to be certain we're on the same page, roughly 10 MB/sec, correct?
16:19<relidy>Marklin: I believe the answer to both of your questions is no. Older accounts (pre-hourly billing) may still have annual billing for some/all Linodes, but that's no longer available. Last I heard someone speak up, non-CC/Paypal billing is only available for really large accounts.
16:19-!-mode/#linode [+l 378] by ChanServ
16:19<Meyer__>rkm: yeah
16:19<Marklin>thanks relidy. appreciate the feedback!
16:20<@jalter>Everyone can make PayPal payments now (but you need to manually initiate them, or else it'll charge your card). Checks and money orders in USD are OK
16:20<@jalter>You can still prepay annually - you'll just use up that credit over the course of a year rather than have it hit your credit card

16:22<rkm>Also (and sorry to bombard you) does linode offer block-storage or other behind-the-linode/same location, storage option, for those that need more space? Does not need to be SSD. And no "oneclick" distributions, eg LAMP, is that right?
16:22-!-mode/#linode [+l 377] by ChanServ
16:23<synfinatic>nope. not yet
16:23<Peng>It's in development. :<

16:25<rkm>thank you all, @jalter - no sort of workaround, max storage behind linode router is limited to the node purchased, to confirm? When it is offered, it will be a block-storage option and SSD or will there be a "colder" storage option such as traditional magnetic HDD's?

16:35<rkm>Okay .. hopefully last couple questions .. is there a vpc-like feature (referring to aws' vpc approach) where linode supports a private network between provisioned nodes, and/or any sort of interface to tunnel-in? Or of there is a vpn-like feature, must we provision a node and run our own tunneling solution (eg OpenVPN)?
16:36<voker57>don't think there's such a feature, you can run openvpn on any node and connect to it with others
16:36<rkm>oh and on the related point -- multiple IP's can be provisioned, or everything needs to go through justification requests?
16:36<voker57>you can also try p2p vpn solutions like tinc
16:37<rkm>voker57: great, thank you. But linode instances do support a private network / out-of-band network separate from the public IP / NIC?
16:39-!-ArchNoob [] has quit [Quit: WeeChat 1.8]
16:39-!-mode/#linode [+l 376] by ChanServ
16:39<voker57>if your linodes are in same datacenter
16:40<akerl>The private network is private to the datacenter, not private to you
16:40<@caker>Linode instances support a non-routable 192.168 range which you can use for LAN traffic. Or, you can also just use your v6 addresses - local v6 traffic is also not counted against your transfer quotas
16:40<akerl>So if I have a server in dallas, and you have a server in dallas, and we both click the "Add Private IPv4" button, our servers can hit each other on that network
16:42<rkm>perfect, thank you!
16:42<rkm>...about multiple public IPv4 IP's?
16:42<linbot>Each Linode comes with 1 public IPv4 address and 1 public IPv6 address. Additional IPv4 addresses are $ 1 per month, and require technical justification. A /64 or /56 of IPv6 can be routed to your Linode at no charge.
